Humanist Canada (HC) is a national, not-for-profit charitable organization.
HC was originally founded as a humanist group in Montreal in 1968 and has since grown to be Canada's largest organization promoting humanism and secularism in Canada.
In 1996, the Registrar General bestowed Humanist Canada with the authority to train and certify officiants to solemnize marriages. As of 2017, Humanist Canada has over 50 licensed humanist officiants across Ontario.
Humanist Canada's Humanist of the Year award has been received by prominent Canadians such as writer/journalist June Callwood, founder of Casey House, the world's first hospice for people with HIV/AIDS. Another recipient is Christopher diCarlo, bioethics professor, author and critical-thinking advocate.
Humanist Canada is an associate member organization of the International Humanist and Ethical Union.
